A friend purchased this plant at a closeout of Target's Garden Center last year. It has flourished with very little water in the hot San Joaquin Valley of CA. The bees love it too! She would like to find more for her garden.

Great, bright yellow flowers in winter. It should be pruned well after flowering to prevent the plant from becoming straggly. It's flowers are daisy like and are bunched on it's dense foliage. Does well in well drained soil. Good for seaside gardens, informal planting and great for cottage gardens. a great plant to try. pokerboy.
